Exterior Painting

  • Serves Fort Collins, CO
I highly recommend MSBS for roofing. I utilized their services for 2 roof/shingle replacement jobs following hail damage. On the first roof originally installed by the builder, Byron talked with me about upgrading my shingle type to a more resistant class that would better withstand our Colorado hail storms. And because MSBS deals with these roofs all the time, they were able to bring the price within close range of what my insurance company would cover. So I chose the upgraded roof for the first replacement. My new roof weathered several other Colorado hail storms over 9 years, in which other homes in the neighborhood had to replace their roofs--but not mine! It took an extreme hail storm 9 years later to finally blemish my upgraded roof. Even then, it was not damaged to any point of failure. But it was weakened just enough that my insurance company agreed it would be covered under insurance. So once again I called Byron. They took care of the replacement within the insurance claim budget, so there was no out of pocket cost to me. (Of course, this may vary based on your specific insurance coverage.) One of the several things I appreciate about Byron is an approach of friendliness and honesty coupled with professionalism. I never sensed I was being up-sold to something I didn't need. He lays out the pros and the cons of your choices, and it's up to you to decide. He also came out in person for both insurance reviews to ensure that they did not miss any points of damage. This helped me receive every legitimate dollar from the insurance. In terms of quality, when the cold weather was upon us, Byron recommended we wait until warmer weather to do the replacement in order get the best shingle seal possible. Other cheap-rate companies were still putting on roofs when the outdoor temperature was well under the manufacturers' recommended temperature range for installation. It's this kind of care to detail and quality that further motivates me to recommend MSBS. And finally in responsiveness, his crew was on time (even early) and gets the whole job done within 1 day, minimizing the inconvenience of the noise during any roof repair. He retains his roofing crew, so there is consistency in their work without a fly-by-night workforce. Call Byron to get excellent quality and an honest assessment.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a painter during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to use virtual tools for communication. If you’re hiring local interior and exterior painters, contact them to see if they’ll set up a video call to assess your project. During this call, they can get a feel for what needs to be done and may be able to give you a price quote. 

Discuss potential plans and strategies for getting the work done safely. And ask whether they accept virtual or digital payments.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

Can I use digital payments to pay for painting services?

Many painters accept digital payments through Venmo, Square Cash, Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle and others. Due to COVID-19, others may quickly adopt this technology to maintain social distancing practices and follow health recommendations.

Contact professionals beforehand to ensure they’re able to accept digital payments and continue to follow safety guidelines throughout your interactions. Compare local interior and exterior painters’ profiles to see which types of payments they accept.

Does a painter need to enter my home?

If you’re hiring an exterior painter, the painter will likely not need to enter your home. But for interior paint jobs, the painter will need to enter your home.

When talking to potential painters, discuss a strategy to make sure you and the painter(s) stay safe while they’re completing the job in your home. Or, you might want to discuss scheduling the paint job at a later date.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

How much value does painting add to a house?

Due to a lack of data available, it’s hard to say whether painting your home’s interior or exterior will increase its value. But there are some important things to keep in mind. 

If you're thinking about selling your home, you might want to repaint areas that look especially worn, dull or chipped so your house looks fresh and new to potential buyers. On the other hand, it’s possible some potential buyers will repaint the home upon moving in. So if you have a limited budget, your money (and time) might be better invested in other types of home projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, installing new floors or fixing broken appliances

When in doubt, check with your realtor before making a final decision.

How often should you paint your walls?

You should repaint your home interior once every few years, depending on the condition of the current paint.

Paint on walls fades over time, regardless of the room — it could happen in a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room or bathroom. However, paint that is exposed to more dirt, particularly flat or matte paint textures, may need repainting more frequently.

Areas of the bathroom or kitchen that routinely get touched may show signs of collecting dirt and grease over time. These would require more frequent painting.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

How long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

Do you tip painters?

Yes, it’s best practice to tip house painters if you’re pleased with their work. Painters perform detailed, skilled work that can last for many years, if not decades. 

Tipping house painters is good etiquette. You can base the tip on the size of the crew, and request the amount to be evenly divided. Or, you can leave a tip based on the size of the job and leave it up to the foreman to decide how it is distributed among the crew. Sometimes — especially with big projects — the painters on the job change during the course of the project, so it’s often customary to leave one tip for the whole job.

They painted but also painted my cabinets on accident and floors and had to come to clean it up. And painted the windows which they didn’t clean up. And I asked for receipts for their Home Depot runs but never received them and have received every excuse why I didn’t get them.

The project was to paint the entire interior of our home with a primary warm color and accent for the archictural unique wall features as well as impact walls. Debby of Integrity Painting provided a knowledgable opinion of how and offered some great ideas which we implemented. We needed the entire job completed by a certain time and Integrity Painting came in 2 days before the deadline with excellent quality and completeness. Integrity Painting even helped with extra help hanging some sconces on our wall and changed out our vaulted ceiling flood lights. Integrity Painting is insured with general Liability and Worker's Compensation Insurance. I would highly recommend Debby, Beth and crew for a high quality interior paint project.

The crew was friendly, but did not do a satisfactory job. The crew had to come back several times to clean up after themselves, and re-paint & stain multiple places on the outside of the property. The job took over a week to complete (exterior paint & deck staining only). I was also expected to go pick up paint when a color change was needed, so that the project could be finished in a timely manner. I would not recommend Integrity Painting.

We hired integrity painting to paint a large bonus room and a smaller bedroom in our home. The work they did was perfect. We then hired them to paint our master bedroom. The work was less than stellar, horrible coverage, paint and caulk has completely ruined our carpet and we have since had to hire another company to reprint the entire room. We contacted Integrity to rectify the situation and we received no response. Nice people, horrible results and I would not recommend. A very costly mistake.

I was very happy to have found Ben and Foothills Painting. From the get go Ben and his office were great to work with. We did the walk through with all of the insurance papers needed and decided on what needed to be done as well as what they were paying for and what I was paying for. This was very helpful. After hiring Foothills Painting they remained professional throughout the job. Scheduling was very important to my wife and I since we have 4 dogs, and need to be home during times like these. Foothills was right on schedule as well as being respectful of our animals. They did a great job with the painting of the house, as well as being quick to touch up any minor spots I might have noticed. I would recommend Ben and Foothills Painting to anyone that is looking for a professional outfit to help with the painting needs.

I had a great experience working with Mike. I hired him to paint several rooms in my house, and his attention to detail in the bid process spoke clearly of his experience and commitment to doing the job well. He did an excellent job with the painting itself and left absolutely no mess for me to clean up. He was also easy to work with in terms of scheduling and was very flexible in working with my needs and availability. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike or to hire him again – in fact, I am having him give me an estimate for exterior painting as well. Highly recommended.

Steve did an excellent job and was very easy to work with! He made this task simple. All I had to do was buy the paint and empty most of the room and he did the rest. The spare bedroom now looks fantastic. Steve was extremely quick to respond to my request and came over first for a quick estimate and then for the appointment to paint. I'll definitely use him again. Thank you Steve!

Steve and his son, Eli, did a wonderful job on our home. Facing the prospect of painting cathedral ceilings over the course of a month-long endeavor, I decided to reach out to Steve on this one. His quote was very fair, the quality was top notch, and he understood some of the nicer fixtures in our home, so it was a no-brainer. I'd recommend Steve to anyone needing interior painting. Excellent work!

Marcelo did such an amazing job painting the stairs and hallway of our home. He brought his own ladders and painting tools - including brushes and rollers. He had two ladders for the stairwell - which reaches 15ft in some areas. He was extremely thorough in his prep - taping and caulking for clean lines as well as protecting all floor surfaces. His clean up was spotless! He is efficient, quick, and extremely professional. He has my highest recommendation - I’ll be hiring him for future projects.

Aaron did a great job with my front porch. He removed the peeling paint, cleaned, primed and repainted all within the time frame he gave me. I will definitely hire Aaron again!

When they know that the job that they did was substandard and they agree to rebate a part of the fee, they should follow through and actually pay the rebate. It took two days to fix the job that they did. Paint bleeds through the taping and streaking on a couple of walls. We had to get ceiling paint and touch up the seams. We had to completely repaint the streaked walls. We talked to Debbie and she agreed to rebate part of the fee. After 10 days, her partner called and threatened to sue if we didn't stop harassing them for the rebate. Overall a really bad experience.

Mr. Taylor is absolutely phenomenal: He knows what he is doing and cares about doing it well. Through every stage of the process, from the initial contact on Thumbtack through the estimate appointment through each project day, he communicated clearly and worked competently to complete our ceiling and bathroom painting projects to high standards. As recent transplants to the area, my husband and I feel very lucky to have found such a trustworthy, competent, and dependable contractor to help us to realize our vision for our home. We unquestionably will hire Mr. Taylor for all subsequent painting needs as we continue to renovate our old house in Midtown Fort Collins.

Mike is doing a fantastic job. We asked him to do some painting, but when he saw the job, he was able to offer ideas on how to solve a host of other problems we had identified that involved carpentry, as well. He's a careful and hard worker, communicative, a problem-solver and a nice person. We're glad to have found him. Trustworthy and reliable.
